What fits in a Extra Small, Small and Medium parcel?

It can be hard to know what will fit in an Extra Small, Small or Medium parcel. As a quick point of reference, we’ve put together a list of some of the most popular items sent in each parcel size. If you are sending a CD then an extra small parcel would be perfect fit. However, if you are sending something bigger, like a radio, then a medium size parcel may be more appropriate.

Make your delivery safe

You can either send your parcel to a ‘safe place’ or have a ‘signed for’ delivery. If your item is valuable, we would always recommend you use the ‘signed for’ delivery option. If you chose to have your parcel delivered to a designated ‘safe place’ then we cannot offer any extended contents cover and your parcel will only be covered up to the value of £25.
